Braving the Wind: The Inspiration
Braving the Wind depicted Kara's story of perseverance and compassion. Kara, a young woman who had been battling cancer for several years, fought hard to survive. To portray her courageous story, I combined Kara's paintings with an interactive metal Healing Tree. Over twenty-thousand visitors participated by hanging caring notes for loved ones who also battled cancer. As individuals and families engaged with the artwork, they experienced transformation and activated the healing process.
“Thank you for providing a healing space to tell our daughter that her friend died of cancer.” Braving the Wind Visitor
